Today we've released our viscosity and specific gravity table online. If you've read any of the C-series manuals we put out, you're probably familiar with this table, as it lists each for various common craft products.

A couple of notes for those interested in this data:

Specific Gravity: the specific gravity, in this case, is the ratio of the density of the substance to the density of water.

SSU (Saybolt universal second): is a measure of the time that it takes for 60 cubic centimeters of the substance to flow through a specific tube.
